About me 

I am a postdoctoral researcher at Medical Research Council Integrative Epidemiology Unit (MRC-IEU) and National Institute for Health Research Bristol Biomedical Research Centre (NIHR-Bristol BRC), University of Bristol.


I started my postdoctoral training following the completion of my PhD thesis titled "Statistical modelling of breastfeeding data" at Curtin University, Australia, since the end of 2018. Prior to that, I obtained a master's degree in Biostatistics with completing a research thesis "Application of Bayesian hierarchical age-period-cohort model to perinatal NSCLP surveillance data in China " at Sichuan University, China in 2014. I received my BMed at Anhui Medical University, China in 2011.
